Pavilion of the Two Sisters - New Orleans City Park

Pavilion of the Two Sisters


Modeled after a classic European orangerie, the Pavillion of the Two Sisters offers one of the most picturesque backdrops for special events in City Park. Floor-to-ceiling, arched doors embedded with windows encapsulate two sides of the Pavilion and provide stunning views of the Botanical Garden’s colorful, landscaped grounds. Additional highlights include two outdoor terraces overlooking the garden and flagstone tile floors ideal for dancing the night away! (Don’t take our word for it: Gambit readers voted the Pavilion of the Two Sisters ‘Best Of’ for a wedding reception in New Orleans.) The Pavilion of the Two Sisters is also ideal for luncheons, dinners, meetings, seminars and corporate events.
